Jon Crispin's Notebook

Julianne Wick Davis / Grand Central Station


The evening at Joe’s Pub was amazing.  Julianne Wick Davis’ song cycle based on my suitcases photos was really incredible.  I was completely blown away by her talent and drive to get this going.  The project is still in the early stages of development, but it is so exciting to have been an inspiration to her. / I was so thrilled that my buddy from Wittenberg, Chris Brigham came out from Chicago for the event.  It was so great to see her.

I am on the Metro North train heading back to New Haven which goes in and out of Grand Central Station.


It is quite a place.

The suitcases site has been having a slew of problems of late.  We are close to getting it sorted and it is currently back up and running.  It appears that it has been innundated with bot attacks attempting to take over the site.  Thanks to Steve Fox at Born Digital for all his hard work.  It has been very frustrating and costly, but fingers crossed we are working towards a resolution.  Cheers all, and thanks for following.

    The “Suitcases” web problems are just wrong!
    Hope karma strikes back at the source asap.
    The project has been a blessing for many, I’m sure, and is truly enlightening for anyone lucky enough to have found it.
    Thank you. . .and best wishes going forward.

    I have been following you since I found your blog on Tumbler when the Suitcases was just starting. I always enjoy your posts. Thank you for the many years of dedication.
